Celebrate with Cheese



Cheese can be associated with celebration – you’re having a party, you bring out a cheese platter; you’ve enjoyed a delicious meal, you finish off with a cheese plate. While we may associate eating cheese with celebration, do we think of gifting cheese at celebratory occasions? If you think about it, what cheese lover wouldn’t love to receive their favourite cheese as a present? This is not a novel idea. As a wedding gift, Queen Victoria received a giant wheel of cheddar cheese weighing in at 1,000 lbs (note that a normal wheel weighs between 60-75 lbs). So next time you’re thinking of a present, think cheese!
